    GPD does make a physical presence known in this area of DT.. I'm not sure how/why no cop didn't see this... especially at that time when the clubs are about to close.

    Every corner you turn, theres an officer... Guess not that night... i hear you on that kmanc4s...

    There seem to more and more of these kind of stories coming out of Greenville. The downtown bar area near campus that used to be frequented primarily by students has become a gathering place for criminals.

    I hope everyone's delighted with all the shootings happening lately. The more people carrying guns, leggy and otherwise, the more people are going to be shot. It is just that simple.
